As we swing into fall we would like to take a moment to reflect on the previous year and acknowledge those who are educating our communities on skin cancer prevention, detection and treatment. During 2011 Coolibar was able to support both individuals and organizations through the donation of UPF 50+ Coolibar clothing, hats and swimwear. Read on for a list of those inspirational groups and what they do.

Believe it or not, it’s Coolibar’s 10th birthday! In September 2001, native Australian and Coolibar founder John Barrow signed the documents to open Coolibar and bring Australia’s advances in sun protection to America. We’re still making strides in sun protective technologies and fashions, but take a moment to see just how far we’ve come!
Ever wonder what exactly happens to your Coolibar order after you place it online or through customer service? There may be more to it than you think. Spend a day with Seth and Max, Coolibar Warehouse Ambassadors of Awesomeness (self titled), and see how Coolibar gets your order out our backdoor and to your front porch.
We’re extremely excited to have Alicia Pizzo Eakright join Coolibar’s merchandising team. Alicia will be taking on the role of Design Director for women’s and children’s clothing. The blog team decided to get to know Alicia a little better and see what we can expect for next season’s Coolibar designs.
Regale with Coolibar’s Creative Specialist, Anna, and her husband Bevin on their culturally immersed journey to Nicaragua. Hiking volcanoes, cooking exotic meals, attempting newbie surfing and visiting a young girl they sponsor though a charity organization is just a taste of how this couple travels. Oh, and they did it all while learning and speaking in Spanish, which they claim is definitely not their first language!
The intense sun and extreme heat has been taking its toll on many volunteers and residents in Joplin, MO who are working to restore the town after a devastating tornado touched-down on May 22, 2011. Sun hats donated to relief efforts offer protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays and the extreme heat.
Coolibar’s customer service team works hard to make each customer happy. Everyone works together to ensure that all customer questions, concerns, and orders are taken care of before it’s time to go home, yet make work enjoyable and exciting for one another. Take it from Allyson, one of Coolibar’s charismatic and friendly customer service reps, a day in Coolibar Customer Service is never dull!
Our last Coolibar employee cook-out was not only inspired by the 4th of July, but the by the hit TV show “Minute to Win It”! Guess you could say that we at Coolibar may take our jobs seriously (and sun protection seriously), but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Just another reason Coolibar is so cool (wink). Check out our album from the event.
